Day 18 SOL

A few years ago I was teaching 5th grade.  I had this girl in my class the year before when I taught 4th grade.  The girls name was Ira.  I was in the classroom when she came to my room.  I heard her say her cat’s name.  I went up to her and looked inside her backpack and there was her cat.  I asked he if she put the cat in her backpack, but she said she didn’t.  The rest of the class was coming into the classroom.  I picked up the backpack and told the teacher across the way that I needed to bring Ira and her cat to the office.  The secretary called her father who was about to go skiing.  He came to school to pick up the cat.  Ira was crying.  I told her it was okay, but not to bring her cat to school again.  She is in high school now and occasionally she sends me a hi message.
